Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies – Quick Recipe

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies – Quick Recipe

“Because Mom Makes them Better” was my youngest son’s quote this morning immediately after my middle son said that it was better than Braums.   I don’t know if I could exactly compete with Braums, but the price sure is better. (BIG GRIN)

You may be surprised that I served this for breakfast.  For a quick breakfast, I used to feed them some bananas with peanut butter smoothed over the top with a small glass of milk. Suddenly, I thought, why not make breakfast super special by serving it all mixed in a smoothie! (Great idea, mom!)

Here’s the pic, to entice you a bit…

Note: I found these three glasses at the thrift store for 49 cents each.  I swiped them up to make our smoothies a little more special.   We were praising God for a special find…because the fact is there were just three of them….which made me think immediately of my 3 sons.

Here’s the original recipe:

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup P.B.
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup
  • 4 ice cubes

Use blender to mix till smooth & creamy.

To make enough for my boys:

I toss in 3 bananas, 3 tsp.maple syrup, 2 or 3 cups milk, 3 large hunks of P.B. with my spatula, and 8 -10 ice cubes.

Tip: About 15 – 30 minutes before making our smoothies, I toss the bananas in the freezer to get them really cold.  You can also use frozen bananas that are getting a little soft and store them up just for banana smoothies.  Just slice into frozen chunks and toss into the blender.

Yes, the peanut butter can be a little fattening, but oh, it adds such a nice thick, rich texture like a Braums treat. Big $avings!

  1. Ooooh, yummy! This sounds so good! Since it has gotten so hot here, I have been making banana “liquidos” as they are called in Mexico and they are so refreshingly satisfying. Here’s how I make them, (but yours sound so much better!)

    2 bananas
    3 Tbs. sugar
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    Very cold Milk – fill blender to 1 qt. after other ingredients have been added.

    Blend and enjoy! These are very popular in Mexico, and I noticed the people give them to their children a lot for breakfast. I also noticed them on a lot of menus in Mexico.

    1. Sounds super quick and easy. I’ve heard of some using yogurt instead of milk. Do Mexicans use much ice? I’ve heard that in some countries ice is certainly not a luxury or available.

      In saying that…I really love the ice blended with my smoothies because it makes them so icy cold. (:
